Christmas Beetle by David Cook Wildlife Photography. Christmas beetle is a name commonly applied to the Australian beetle genus Anoplognathus. They are known as Christmas beetles because they are abundant in both urban and rural areas close to Christmas.
Giant rove beetle in the miombo forests. It's about long, black, hairy, with strikingly bright reddish elytra and beaded antenna. It hunts under the vegetation growing on and around huge termite hills.
A planthopper is any insect in the infraorder Fulgoromorpha, exceeding 12,500 described species worldwide. The name comes from their remarkable resemblance to leaves and other plants of their environment and from the fact that they often "hop" for quick transportation in a similar way to that of grasshoppers. However, planthoppers generally walk very slowly so as not to attract attention.
